Overview

As part of Back Bay's ongoing effort to make the works of John Fowles available in uniform trade paperback editions, The Ebony Tower is released to coincide with the paperback publication of Wormholes, the author's acclaimed collection of essays and occasional writings.

The Ebony Tower, which comprises a novella, three stories, and a translation of a medieval French tale, echoes themes from Fowles's widely praised and bestselling novels as it probes the fitful relations between love and hate, pleasure and pain, fantasy and reality.

Meet the Author

John Fowles (1926-2005) was educated at Oxford and subsequently lectured in English at universities in Greece and the UK. The success of his first novel, The Collector, published in 1963, allowed him to devote all his time to writing. His books include the internationally acclaimed and bestselling novels The Magus, The French Lieutenant's Woman, and Daniel Martin. Fowles spent the last decades of his life on the southern coast of England in the small harbor town of Lyme Regis.
